ABS-CBN lays out long-term assistance for victims ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation today disclosed plans to help victims of the ULTRA tragedy for the long term.

Fr. Carmelo Caluag, member of the ABS-CBN board of directors and officer-in-charge of rehabilitation, said the program will begin with the families left behind by the 71 who died in the incident.

"The program will be a way for those who want to help our less fortunate Filipino countrymen improve their lives. It will be a way for all of us to share in the hopes and dreams of the needy," said Caluag.

The program will run for a period of three years and provide holistic support, including financial, psychological and emotional assistance.

"Because each bereaved family has a unique need, ABS-CBN continues to study appropriate interventions to ensure that its assistance will lead to long-term benefits for each family."

Caluag assures the public that help for the victims will not end with the burial of the dead. Assistance will continue in cooperation with partner institutions.
